The Palestinian Health Ministry on Saturday accused Israel of denying cancer patients the right to medical treatment abroad, Anadolu news agency reported.
“Israel deprives 40 percent of cancer patients in Gaza of their right to medical treatment abroad,” Khaled Thabet, head of the ministry’s oncology department, told Anadolu.
“Cancer patients in Gaza face multiple challenges that make their health conditions even worse,” he said, citing Israeli restrictions that “prevent the entry of necessary medicines” to patients.
The ministry official added that hospitals in the Palestinian territory “face a huge shortage of radiotherapy services.”
A handful of top European Union officials gathered in Kiev with Ukraine's leadership on Friday under the sound of air raid sirens for a risky summit at a moment Ukraine is pushing to be fast-tracked for entry into the bloc. Though far from the front line fighting in the east and south, the capital has seen sporadic airstrikes over the past months, but none have been recorded thus far Friday while the summit is being held.

"There will be no let up in our resolve. We will also support you every step of the way on your journey to the EU," EU chairman Charles Michel wrote on Twitter Friday, with a photo of him in the capital's iconic central square. But Zelensky does has a specific timeline in mind, which he voiced Thursday after initial talks with European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen.
"I believe that Ukraine deserves to start negotiations on EU membership this year," Zelensky told reporters. "Only together a strong Ukraine and a strong European Union can protect the life we value." EU Foreign Policy chief Josep Borrell was also at the summit.
After Ukraine's candidacy was approved by the EU last June, huge hurdles remain which will without doubt make the process slower that Kiev desires, given any country seeking membership must meet key conditions in areas like corruption, an independent judiciary, media, and rule of law issues.
For this reason, European Commission President von der Leyen acknowledged "no rigid timelines" it is being guided by. "There are no rigid timelines, but there are goals that you [Ukraine] have to reach," she told Zelensky.
The Russian ambassador to the Central African Republic (CAR) has said that 1,890 “Russian instructors” were present in the country, a focus of operations for the Kremlin-linked Wagner Group mercenary outfit.
“Today, there are 1,890 Russian instructors in the C.A.R,” Russian state-owned news agency RIA quoted ambassador Alexander Bikantov as saying in an interview on Friday. The government is interested in increasing their number. Relatively recently, Bangui sent the relevant application to the UN Security Council.”
Low-flying helicopters, loud explosions, and simulated gunfire apparently gave some San Diego residents quite the shock as the Army conducted a training exercise across town on Thursday evening.
Army personnel were conducting “coordinated, essential training” in “designated locations” across the military town as part of an exercise scheduled to run from Jan. 24 through Feb. 4, according to a training advisory posted by Naval Base Coronado on Wednesday.
That training, officially carried out by U.S. Army Special Operations Command (USASOC), saw rotary-wing aircraft flit across the skies above several San Diego communities over the course of the evening.
An undisclosed number of V-22 Ospreys across three services will halt operations until a component tied to the engine is replaced, a defense official said Saturday, as part of an ongoing effort to address a hard clutch engagement issue that first alarmed the Air Force in summer 2022.
At issue is the input quill assembly, which attaches the Osprey’s engine to its prop-rotor gear box. The V-22 Joint Program Office on Saturday announced a time limit for these parts’ use, after a recent data analytics effort showed a clear connection between the age of the input quill assemblies and the aircraft’s likelihood of experiencing a hard clutch engagement.
The Defense Department is not disclosing the flight hour limit at which the input quill assembly must be replaced, nor how many of about 400 total aircraft across all the services will require this immediate maintenance work.
Still, a defense official, who spoke to a small group of reporters on condition of not being named, said Marine Corps, Navy and Air Force Special Operations Command squadrons will continue training and operations with aircraft that have not met that time threshold as the others are replaced.
A group of Republican congressman have called for Al Jazeera’s Capitol Hill media credentials to be suspended until the organisation registers as a foreign agent.
A letter signed by Congressmen Jack Bergman, Alex Mooney and Michael Waltz was sent to House Speaker Kevin McCarthy, minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries and leaders of the House Administration Committee on Tuesday, asking for Al Jazeera’s credentials to be suspended.
"We are writing to request the immediate suspension of press credentials for the Al Jazeera Media Network (AJMN), and for that suspension to remain in place until the State of Qatar and its propaganda arm agree to adhere to the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA),” the letter stated.
The government of Peru on Sunday expanded and prolonged a state of emergency to deal with a two-month-old revolt against President Dina Boluarte that has claimed 48 lives in clashes between protesters and security forces.
Seven southern Peruvian regions -- Madre de Dios, Cusco, Puno, Apurimac, Arequipa, Moquegua and Tacna -- will fall under the measure, which will remain in place for 60 days, according to a notice in the government gazette.
On January 13, the government had extended by 30 days a state of emergency for Lima, El Callao, Cusco and Puno.
With the new extension not covering the capital Lima, nor El Callao -- which hosts the country's main airport and maritime terminals -- the state of emergency there will expire in mid-February.
The measure authorizes the military to back up police actions to restore public order. It also suspends constitutional rights such as freedom of movement and assembly.
According to congressionally passed statutes, research of active laws, and extra details obtained through the Freedom of Information Act, the Department of Defense owns, implements, and oversees the COVID-19 vaccine program as a “Countermeasure” to foreign attack. While the public was bombarded with an orchestrated fear campaign, the U.S. Government managed the Covid response as a national security threat.
The Three-Legged Stool
The undercover operation was orchestrated utilizing three critical legal maneuvers:
1. Emergency Use Authorization EUA.
2. Prep Act,
3. Other Transactions Authority
President Trump declared a Public Health Emergency (PHE) on March 13, 2020, under the Stafford Act, putting the National Security Council in charge of the Covid policy.Covid-19 vaccines are “medical countermeasures” – a grey area of products that are not regulated as vaccines or medicines.
“They put the National Security Council in charge and treated it as an act of war,” said Latypova.
According to Operation Warp Speed/ASPR reports, the DoD ordered, oversaw, and tightly managed the development, manufacture, and distribution of Covid countermeasures, mainly utilizing the DoD’s previously established network of military contractors and consortia.
Behind Washington’s desperate appeal for tanks and other lethal weaponry for Ukraine, looms the nagging prospect that Russia’s winter offensive may have already begun in the south where heavy fighting has broken out along the Line of Contact in the Zaporizhia region. While the information from the front remains sketchy, some analysts think that Russia is planning to send its troops and armored units northward in order to block vital supply-lines and trap Ukrainian forces in the east.
A Russian blitz northward would likely be synchronized with the movement of a second large grouping pushing south along the Oskil River. These two dagger-like thrusts would be accompanied by multiple missile strikes aimed at strategic bridges and railway-lines crossing the Dnieper River. If the Russians were able to succeed in such an operation, the bulk of Ukraine’s army would be effectively encircled in the east while Moscow would have regained control over most of its traditional territories. The offensive might not end the war, but it would end Ukraine’s existence as a viable, contiguous state. This is an excerpt from an article at Aljazeera:
Moscow’s forces are pushing towards two towns in Ukraine’s southern Zaporizhia region, where fighting intensified this week after several months of a stagnant front… Vladimir Rogov, a Russian-installed official in the region, said offensive actions were concentrated around two towns: Orikhiv, around 50km (30 miles) south of Ukrainian-controlled regional capital Zaporizhzhia, and Hulyaipole, further east….
The Russian army later claimed for a second day in a row that it had taken “more advantageous lines and positions” after “offensive operations” in the Zaporizhia region…. In its daily report on Sunday,the Ukrainian army said “more than 15 settlements were affected by artillery fire” in Zaporizhia…. He also said this week that fighting has “sharply increased” in the southern region.” (“Russia advances towards two towns in Ukraine’s Zaporizhia region”, AlJazeera)
On December 15, about three weeks after her third Pfizer booster shot, Princess Bajrakitiyabha Narendira Debyavati collapsed with heart issues and went into a coma.
“The 44-year old eldest daughter of the King in Thailand, and likely heir to the throne, had reported to be in excellent health prior to the vaccination and collapse while training her dogs.
The media seemed to generally lose interest after a January 9 update in which it was reported the princess remained in a coma and, according to the palace, has now been diagnosed with “severe heart arrhythmia resulting from inflammation following a mycoplasma infection.
One authority recently suggested that Thailand was preparing to declare its contracts for Pfizer vaccine “null and void” and go after the vaccine maker for damages.
Propagandists in the media have launched into overdrive to try to discredit such news, and to claim “no evidence” of a vaccine tie to the sudden illness of the princess (without mentioning that there is no evidence exonerating the vaccine, either).
Google and other Big Tech companies, as well as their “fact-checkers” have repeatedly disseminated disinformation and censored accurate information on Covid and vaccines on behalf of vaccine industry interests.” (Sheryl Attikson)
The corporate media and their Antifa footsoldiers bandy about the term “fascism” quite freely. Somehow, through magnificent logic-pretzel contortions, they claim that resistance to government mandates to inject yourself with experimental drugs is not resistance to fascism, but fascism itself.
Truly, they have a wondrous capacity to invert reality.
But, for all the revisionism, fascism as a governing ideology actually means something very specific.
Progenitor of the ideology, Italian fascist dictator Benito Mussolini, infamously defined fascism – or, alternatively, corporatism — as the “merger of corporate and state power.”
Let’s examine true 21st-century techno-fascism, and how it works in the real world:
The total 2022 US government budget was $6.272 trillion (25.1% of GDP).
A full quarter of the nation’s economic activity is allocated to projects carried out theoretically in the public interest, funded by the public treasury.
Amid the revelations of boxes of classified documents found to be in President Biden’s possession from days when he was a vice president and a senator is a new group of documents that are at the University of Delaware. And, the transfer of the boxes of documents, which began in 2010 and had dubious aspects, did not happen until 2012. Now as the strange aspect are coming to light, some are calling for transparency as to the documents, what they contain, and the specifics of the timeline during the transfer of the boxes.
As Biz Pac Review reports:
The story begins in 2010, when a business associate of Biden’s crack-smoking son, Hunter, was inexplicably assigned the task of transferring the documents from Biden’s VP office to the University of Delaware. The moving of the documents was reportedly performed by Eric Schwerin, who was Hunter’s Rosemont Seneca business partner. The 1,850 boxes of documents were moved to the University of Delaware after Biden decided to donate them. While most of the documents were reportedly from his tenure as a Delaware senator, some of the documents were also from the 2009 Obama-Biden presidential transition, as exclusively reported on Thursday by the Daily Mail.
The Telegraph has published a ‘Letter to the Editor’ in which a reader from Canada outlines that a family member had to wait a year for a psychiatric appointment but that it’s possible to make an appointment for euthanasia in two weeks.
The letter, published last week, draws attention to the ease with which one could end their own life through assisted suicide compared to the difficulty of receiving genuine medical care. Its author, Susan Postill, from Toronto, Canada, said:
“Here in Canada, a member of my family was recently told there would be a one-year wait to see a psychiatrist, despite a serious psychiatric history. During the same time frame, a woman I know of was able to make a euthanasia appointment within two weeks.”
“Britain is right to be cautious on this matter”, she added.
Between 2014 and 2019, US tax dollars were funneled to the Wuhan Institute of Virology via EcoHealth Alliance. Given that US scientists have far more virology expertise than the Chinese, this begs an obvious question: what type of research were US tax dollars paying for in Wuhan, China? Dr. Fauci’s surprising statement in an interview might provide the short answer to this question: “You don’t want to go to Hoboken, NJ or Fairfax, VA to be studying the bat-human interface that might lead to an outbreak, so you go to China.”
Given what we’ve endured for the past three years, Fauci’s “so you go to China” comment suggests that he hadn’t considered the global implications of a highly transmissible coronavirus leaking from a Chinese lab plagued by serious safety issues.
Unwilling to admit that he, EcoHealth Alliance, and their Chinese collaborators, are suspects in one of the largest crimes against humanity, Fauci instead opted to conspire with his boss, Francis Collins, to declare “lab leak” a “destructive conspiracy” that must be “put down.” Sadly, it’s clear that from the beginning, these two distinguished scientists made up their minds about virus origin without evidence from both sides of the debate.
Even worse, renowned scientists that rely on Fauci for their research funding, fearful of sanctions being placed on their life’s work, rallied around the “anti-lab leak” stance. One of the premier scientific journals, Science, whose political bias has become very apparent, attempted to provide legitimacy to Fauci’s position by publishing a paper by authors that claimed “dispositive evidence” that SARS-CoV-2 emerged from an animal at the Wuhan market. This paper allegedly “crushed” the lab-leak hypothesis, despite leaving much room for debate.
Information suggesting that Chinese spy balloons traveled over the continental United States during the Trump administration was "discovered after" former President Donald Trump left office, a senior administration official told Fox News.
A defense official on Saturday said Chinese spy balloons briefly traveled over the United States at least three times during the Trump administration.
A powerful 7.8 magnitude earthquake rocked wide swaths of Turkey and Syria early Monday, toppling hundreds of buildings and killing more than 1,500 people. Hundreds were still believed to be trapped under rubble, and the toll was expected to rise as rescue workers searched mounds of wreckage in cities and towns across the area.
On both sides of the border, residents jolted out of sleep by the pre-dawn quake rushed outside on a cold, rainy and snowy night. Buildings were reduced to piles of pancaked floors, and major aftershocks continued to rattle the region.
As migrants arrive in NYC, National Guard soldiers have been stationed in the Port Authority bus terminal to hand out free tickets for shuttles heading upstate towards the Canadian border.
City Hall sources said the move was part of a 're-ticketing' plan to help migrants work their way to Canada, according to The New York Post, where president Justin Trudeau has been outspoken about building a haven for people in need.
Israel will carefully study the possibility of supplying Ukraine with defensive weapons, including the Iron Dome air defense system, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on February 5, answering a question on the matter by French news channel LCI.
The Israeli PM, who assumed his position very recently, stressed that his country does not want to start a confrontation with Russia in Syria.
“I’m going to look into it. But I’ll judge it in the best way that [I] can,” Netanyahu said, adding that Israel would examine the issue “in light of our national interest.”
Netanyahu went on to explain to reporters that Israeli and Russian warplanes “fly within spitting distance over the skies of Syria.”
“We’re not interested in having a military confrontation between Israel and Russia. I don’t think that will serve anyone’s purpose. So far, we’ve avoided it,” he added.
Doctors Were Bullied Into Not Writing Medical Exemptions
Despite a number of efforts, the university refused to engage in a debate, and instead put the mandatory COVID jab policy in place. As students started to be steamrolled, many reached out to him for help. They’d day things like, “I’m not a religious person, and so, in good conscience, I don’t want to submit a dishonest religious exemption, but I have other moral or ethical concerns about this vaccine.”
Others were unable to get an appropriate medical exemption. The reason they couldn’t get one was because the California Medical Board sent a letter threatening to revoke the medical license of any physician who wrote “inappropriate exemptions.” They, of course, never defined what was appropriate or inappropriate, but it had the intended effect. Doctors were incredibly hesitant to write medical exemptions at all, for fear of the repercussions.
“I remember one patient of mine, a young man who went to his rheumatologist and this doctor told him, ‘Given your autoimmune condition, given what I’ve seen of the vaccine data so far, I recommend that you don’t get the vaccine because I think you’re young and otherwise healthy. You’re not at high risk of COVID, but the vaccine could exacerbate your autoimmune condition.’
The patient then turned to him and said, ‘OK, can you write me a medical exemption because there’s a mandate at my place of employment?’ The same doctor that just recommended against the vaccine said, ‘No, I’m sorry, I can’t do that because I might lose my medical license.’ So this was the, in my view, intolerable situation that we found ourselves in 2021.
Federal Election Commission filings reveal that Representative James Clyburn (D-SC) gave six figures from campaign funds to two family members during the 2022 election cycle.
The Democrat lawmaker gave thousands of dollars to a firm associated with his son-in-law. He also gifted his grandson with nearly $100,000, according to filings with the Federal Election Commission per Fox News.
• 96 food processing and distribution facilities destroyed since Biden took office
• People who received all five shots recommended by their governments increased the likelihood of their dying within the year by 35%
• Why are our governments killing us and how is Hunter Biden involved?
It turns out that Charles McGonigal, the disgraced former New York FBI Counterintelligence Chief arrested and charged last week for taking bribes from Russian oligarch, Oleg Deripaska was in charge of the office that was monitoring Hunter Biden’s business dealings with CCP spy and CEFC China Energy Vice Chairman, Patrick Ho.
Hunter recorded himself describing Ho as China’s “Spy Chief” during a phone call that he archived on his infamous Laptop from Hell.
Ho paid Hunter roughly $1 million to represent him as his lawyer while he was under surveillance by McGonigal’s FBI Counterintelligence Division office in New York.
As fate would have it, both Patrick Ho and Charles McGonigal would eventually be arrested by the FBI at JFK Airport, Ho in 2017 and McGonigal a couple of weeks ago. When Patrick Ho was arrested in November of 2017, he called Joe Biden’s little brother, Jimmy, who later told The New York Times that he believed that the call had been meant for Hunter, who was his lawyer at the time.
Garrett Ziegler, Founder of the Marco Polo Research Group and a Biden laptop archivist calls this admission by Jimmy Biden “Insane, because it’s clearly illegal, in that they’re violating the FARA [Foreign Agents Registration Act].”
In just these revelations, alone the Biden family committed dozens of FARA violations with the punishment for each being up to 5 years in prison. This is on top of the influence-peddling, the bribery, the money-laundering and the treason.
I believe the Ukraine situation will be post-war sometime in 2023. This contradicts the recent words of the NATO Secretary General Stoltenberg and last year’s statements by US CJCS General Mark Milley.
The recent Judge Napolitano interview with Scott Ritter is invaluable. Ritter, who has studied this situation in depth, and US warfighting and war-making for decades, explains that the war should be finished as early as August 2023. Interestingly, he notes that both Zelensky and General Zaluzhnyi have made similar projections.
Ritter mentions things that we don’t often hear in US media, although given the US military is missing its recruitment targets, year after year – we certainly should. He refers to Ukrainian video, like this one, of policemen chasing down men in the street to “recruit” them to a deadly and unpopular front.
US spokespeople do seem to recognize is that the situation has settled into a kind of trench warfare, mutual defense of lines and territory already held. There is no substantial eastern movement possible by the Ukrainian side, and similar lack of western movement forward by the Russian side. The lines roughly match the ethno-linguistic dividing line of what was the Ukrainian land mass.
On February 16, 2022, a full week before Putin sent combat troops into Ukraine, the Ukrainian Army began the heavy bombardment of the area (in east Ukraine) occupied by mainly ethnic Russians. Officials from the Observer Mission of the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) were located in the vicinity at the time and kept a record of the shelling as it took place. What the OSCE discovered was that the bombardment dramatically intensified as the week went on until it reached a peak on February 19, when a total of 2,026 artillery strikes were recorded. Keep in mind, the Ukrainian Army was, in fact, shelling civilian areas along the Line of Contact that were occupied by other Ukrainians.
We want to emphasize that the officials from the OSCE were operating in their professional capacity gathering first-hand evidence of shelling in the area. What their data shows is that Ukrainian Forces were bombing and killing their own people. This has all been documented and has not been challenged.
So, the question we must all ask ourselves is this: Is the bombardment and slaughter of one’s own people an ‘act of war’?
Russia has warned that Ukraine is planning to carry out a false-flag operation in which it will blow up buildings in the eastern city of Kramatorsk, before blaming it on Moscow.
Russia’s Defense Ministry sounded the alarm on Sunday, saying the mock operation is designed to target three medical buildings, namely two dispensaries and one hospital, in Kramatorsk.
Kiev would then “accuse Russia of an allegedly ‘deliberate attack’ on civilian objects” and committing war crimes, the ministry said.
“The bombing of the medical institutions will be presented as another ‘atrocity’ of Russian troops, requiring a response from the world community and accelerating the supply of long-range missiles to Kiev [to be used] for strikes on Russian territory,” the defense ministry added.
President Dwight D. Eisenhower once decried the “military-industrial complex.” (Has it brought us the war in Ukraine?) Yet my years in the Border Patrol taught me that there’s also an immigration-industrial complex that is similarly venal, and dangerous.
Northern Virginia has two of the country’s wealthiest counties because so many residents are in the business of government, either as bureaucrats or the federal contractors once called “Beltway Bandits,” or as think tankers and staffers on Capitol Hill. They’re taking taxpayer money in one form or another, and so the biggest business in the Washington, D.C., metropolitan area is the government itself.
Similarly, a few years back, when I was detailed to help out the border invasion that occurred when Trump capitulated to the “kids-in-cages!” propaganda, I learned a corollary to the adage that nothing is more expensive than cheap labor: Nothing is more expensive than stopping border enforcement. It costs the taxpayers a lot more money to invite an invasion of illegals than securing the border to keep them out.
When I landed at Ground Zero, not just the number of illegals coming across appalled me—so did the amount of money we spent to import them.
They talk for hours before you finally realize who it is, leading to most people avoiding those phone numbers they don’t know. A new bill in New Jersey will require telemarketers to give out their names and phone number.
Fox News states, “You’ve got to read the bill introduced by Republican state Sen. Jon Bramnick, which would require telemarketers ‘to provide the customer the name and telephone number of the person on whose behalf the call is being made.’” Not only do they have to release that information, but they must say it within the first thirty seconds of the phone call.
The GOP/ GAP took back the U.S. House of Representatives in 2022 on the pledge to thwart Amnesty and to stop the illegal alien invasion at the southwest border. But, while the caucus generally shows no sign of wavering on Amnesty, some squishes are wimping out on serious border control. And they cower from impeaching, not only President Biden, but also even his appalling Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas. Nor do they want to force the immigration issue into the upcoming debt ceiling fight. Still, patriot Republicans, like Arizona’s Andy Biggs and Texas’ Chip Roy, are pressing for something more than talk—and they believe the debt ceiling fight is the perfect opportunity. Will they stage a revolt of the kind that forced House Speaker Kevin McCarthy to make key concessions to get his job?
Biggs just announced articles of impeachment against Mayorkas. “The first thing that goes when a country is actually devolving is when you lose your geographical integrity," he told Tucker Carlson. “And Secretary Mayorkas—that’s his main job—he has willfully imposed his own dangerous policies on us,” Biggs continued, channeling VDARE.com. “It’s not negligence. It’s not incompetence. It’s willful.” [Mayorkas facing articles of impeachment from GOP lawmaker, by Charles Creitz, Fox News, January 31, 2023]
Biggs’s is the second impeachment effort offered by Republicans in the new Congress. Oklahoma Rep. Pat Fallon also introduced articles of impeachment over Mayorkas undermining border security and encouraging illegal immigration That measure even gained the support of squishes like Texas Rep. Dan Crenshaw. Significantly, Fallon had opposed impeachment in the last Congress, but now thinks it’s time to send a message [House GOP lays groundwork for Mayorkas impeachment as moderates balk, by Melanie Zanona, Manu Raju and Annie Grayer, CNN, January 17, 2023].
The FBI keeps track of homicide statistics, including the race of victims and offenders. However, a substantial number of homicides have unknown offenders. Herein I develop a method that combines CDC victimization data and FBI perpetrator data to produce more reliable homicide perpetration statistics. The analysis provides clues about the distribution of the unknown perpetrators.
The black line is @Scientific_Bird’s estimate, using both FBI (blue line) and CDC data (red line), of the black share of all homicide offenders. The black share has gotten considerably worse from the early 1980s, when the black share of murder offenders was in the upper 40s, to the “racial reckoning” year of 2020, when it reached almost 65%.
Sherelle Jacobs, herself black, thinks
“The evil ‘whiteness’ stuff is getting out of hand. Everywhere one looks there are excesses. Take the decolonised university courses that seek to purge Dead White Men (the intellectual cousin of the Evil White Male) from the curriculum. Or the obsession with toppling statues of figures such as Cecil Rhodes. That’s before we get onto the full-blown anti-white discrimination. When I attended a colourism workshop at my old university not long ago, mixed race women, including me, were prohibited from speaking on account of our “proximity to whiteness”. Even worse is the trend towards barring white people from black spaces altogether. Two Canadian theatres have sparked an outcry by limiting performances to an ‘all black-identifying audience.’”
In other words, her British university would not be inclined to let Obama speak, because he has white blood and is not an authentic black. Does this mean that California’s reparations will only be for 100% blacks?
How evil that whites made blacks sit in separate areas of theaters, but whites are prevented from being in the theater at all. This is OK because it prevents blacks in our multicultural society from having to tolerate any association whatsoever with whites.
Sherelle Jacobs remains confused about a number of things and does not bring herself to the realization that the slave trade in backs, as contrasted with the slave trade in whites, originated in the black African slave wars. The blacks sold into slavery were sold by blacks who captured them in slave wars. The whites purchased already enslaved blacks. The whites did not enslave them. The whites and Arabs were the customers of the black enslavers. This aspect of the story is completely left out. And will continue to be. It doesn’t fit the false narrative that is being used to dismantle Western civilization. Nevertheless, Sherelle Jacobs received a wake up call at her university by being prohibited from speaking because of her “proximity to whiteness.”
Joe Johnson-Winfield remembers when west Baltimore’s Pennsylvania Avenue attracted locals and tourists alike to its renowned jazz clubs, upscale shops and vibrant nightlife. Back then, the bustling commercial strip, also known as The Avenue, was a Black cultural hub frequented by civil rights leaders.
Over a half-century later, nearly everything has changed.
On his way to the store for cat food Monday morning, Johnson-Winfield walked past the scene of a Saturday evening shootout that killed two people and left three others injured.
At least one of the gunshot victims, a young mother, was an apparent bystander. She was waiting for takeout with her two small children when gunfire broke out, according to police. She tried to drive away, but a bullet left her critically wounded behind the wheel. Her vehicle continued down the block before crashing into a pole. The children – a baby and a toddler – both suffered serious injuries from the crash. The woman died Monday in the hospital, police said.
Less than two weeks earlier, a man was stabbed to death at the same busy intersection, which includes a subway stop, corner stores and other businesses.
